The Institute of Thematic Gender Studies
The Institute of Thematic Gender Studies aims at establishing national and international excellence in research as well as PhD- and Masters Programmes in thematic and post-disciplinary gender research. More than stimulating the production of new knowledges in the area of gender studies, the Institute also aims at increasing the amount of courses and seminars made available to students and researchers. In this way, the Institute contributes to the continuous strengthening of transdisciplinary gender research as a field of knowledge both within and outside of Sweden. Since the Institute was established in 2006 it has been the host of GEXcel.
The National Secretariat for Gender Research has organized a series of studies of Swedish gender studies education. In a recently published report within this series, gender studies alumni have responded to survey questions and participated in focus group interviews, to provide a picture of the connections between gender studies education, ways of perceiving the competencies specific to gender studies, and experiences from the working life that for many alumni have followed after their education.
